Yes, CCleaner offers that "warning" when you choose to disable its latest "feature".  I would describe it as a "scare tactic", pressuring users into keeping Active Monitoring enabled. For those who intentionally wish to disable active monitoring, it's safe to proceed here.

Sadly this version has some bugs. This latest addition of system monitoring can not be stopped. Piriform has yet to respond to this bug alert. I have uninstalled this version and reverted to the previous.

This time the big addition is a limited version of Active System Monitoring, a smart feature previously reserved for the commercial CCleaner Professional. Turn it on and CCleaner monitors your system, checking for junk, and lets you know when it’s time to clean up.

What you don’t get is browser monitoring, or any control over what CCleaner does when triggered (it just displays a message): those features are still Professional-only.

I can confirm this works,
Quote
To remove the Startup entry, and disable the tray icon, there are TWO steps required:

1) First, under Options/Monitoring, UNcheck the box to Enable SYSTEM Monitor.

2) Then, you must go to Options/Advanced, and UNcheck the box to Enable ACTIVE Monitoring.
After doing this, which is pretty easy to do, and fairly obvious once you step through the Options page options for a look, I no longer get a system tray icon and Scotty stops waking up my dog. So no need to edit the Registry or ccleaner's ini file.

I am not sure I understand all the fuss. Yes, disabling the feature should be a simple and obvious one-step process so they need to fix that, and perhaps the option should be disabled by default - but it should be no surprise when ANY software maker adds a new feature and enables it by default.

But beyond that, CCleaner still works as expected and I am not going to uninstall this latest version.

Yeah, they seem to be running around in circles at this point. I note my CC says V4.18.4842 it is out of date and takes me to the 4844 update page, but when I install that update, it still says I am at 4842. :(

Okay I got 4844 installed. It looks like the only change is now both the check boxes (Enable system monitoring and Enable Active Monitoring) are now under the Monitoring section, instead of Monitoring for one and Advanced for the other.

Works for me.

Did the same. No complaints. It's nice that the active monitoring is now a user option as opposed to being preselected.
"In an age when mass society has rendered obsolete the qualities of individual courage and independent thought, the oceans of the world still remain, vast and uncluttered, beautiful but unforgiving, awaiting those who will not submit. Their voyages are not an escape, but a fulfillment."

Give me at h/t for the copy/paste crowd if this leaks somewhere else.
